At Greenhills, we understand that choosing a school which will give your child the best start to their education journey is a big decision.  We endeavour to ensure that every child makes a successful transition to primary school and that it is a trouble-free and happy experience.  At Greenhills, parent participation and involvement is actively encouraged and appreciated.  We welcome the opportunity to show you what Greenhills has to offer you and your child.

 

Important Enrolment Information for Potential Prep Children for 2018  with an address "In Zone."

If Greenhills is your nearest primary school you are considered living in our "zone". You have an enrolment place. To secure this place we will accept your enrolment form from Monday the 6th of February.

Important Enrolment Information for Potential Prep Children for 2018  with an address "Out of Zone."

Due to land and facility limitations, Greenhills Primary School has an ‘enrolment ceiling' which restricts enrolments once that ceiling is reached. The ceiling is 475 students. Enrolment numbers will be 525 students in 2017 . Demand for enrolments at Greenhills Primary School currently exceeds capacity.

In order to be enrolled at Greenhills you need to be "residing inside" our Zone which means that Greenhills is the nearest Primary School to your place of residence. If another Primary School is closer to your house you are outside of this area.

An enrolment process has been developed. We do anticipate that some Prep places for 2018 will be available for families who reside outside of our Zone. We will be accepting enrolment forms for 2018 from 9.00am on Friday March 3rd 2017. Prep enrolments of children who reside closer to another Primary School will be placed on a waiting list. The list will be based on the date and time a completed enrolment form is received at Greenhills Primary School.

For Enrolment forms, please download the enrolment form below. When lodging the form, please note that as stated in the Primary School Privacy Notice, an immunisation certificate and satisfactory evidence of a child's name and date of birth must be provided to the school (eg birth certificate, passport).
